about

The song that started it all ... it's not really that the CD is an offspring of the video, it's just that the video presented itself first. What the hell, I've never really stopped recording after Lizard and this song was stolen anyway ... an earlier number I penned called 'Radio City' is actually where I lifted the opening bass pattern from. Ironically, I was writing a third and final verse for 'Radio City' when I entered the wrong tempo and pattern on the drum machine. Way slow and sexy ... baby, I jumped in. There are three versions of this song, the video edit that accompanies our DVD release, and of course, the extended mix. The extended version is languishing in the vault ... the seven minute songs seem to have had their day in the sun. Good enough ...

lyrics

You’re so in fashion, outshine a brilliant diamond
My every dream revolves around your style
Oh so delicious, you’re tops upon my wish list
Something very vicious in your smile

Out on a mission, just a step outside your eight ball
I don’t suppose it’s rainbows all the time
I’ll climb the ladder, find the closet where you’re nesting
I’m best at bringing little flaws to light

I’ve got a camera, let’s have sex, I’ll take some pictures

So get raw, then we get off
C’mon baby, get raw, then we get off

I look around me, see the devastation
Men are entertaining with their eyes
Some apparition, the dangers I envision
In a heart that never listens to the mind

Enough with the fanfare, I only want to go where
Your warfare’s hot and sweaty every night
Hours would be dreamless, the tortures would be seamless
Black fades into grey then into white

Get raw, get off
